One Day Island Hopping – Maui to Oahu

So, you are spending a week or two in Maui and want to go to Oahu for the day to visit the Polynesian Culture Center and/or Pearl Harbor and more.  Maui to Oahu is certainly possible and affordable, and a great time to earn those Hawaiian Miles points that could cover it for you.  Plan in advance because some of the best fares go quickly.  Looking out to August 5th of this year, many of the best fare options were already taken.  You can certainly do both Pearl Harbor and the PCC in the same day.  Go to Pearl Harbor first, that’s the best and least busy time anyway and the PCC doesn’t really open until 12:05pm.

The greatest challenge will be to visit the PCC and see all there is and still make your return flight.  You certainly cannot stay of the evening luau which we think is one of the best luau’s around.  The show and luau end too late and you will miss your return flight.  You can however stay a night on Oahu and then you could catch everything.  In fact, we like doing Pearl Harbor first thing in the morning, and beating the crowds, and after that you could head to the North Shore to visit the PCC.  Stay over night at Turtle Bay or back over at Waikiki and fly back to Maui the next day.

Here is what I found for August 5th, 2013
